Angelina Jolie has broken her notorious social media blackout at last and debuted on Instagram – just six days before celebrating her 43rd birthday.

The Oscar-winning actress, who has avoided Twitter, Snapchat and Insta until now, was captured by co-star Elle Fanning on set for the second instalment of the Maleficent franchise. Jolie is seen photobombing Elle, who poses for a cute selfie snap, wearing full-on Maleficent hair and make-up. Horns included, obvi.

The duo, who are both in London filming for the new follow-up movie, both look super happy and relaxed as they’re pictured smiling and Jolie flashes a peace sign. These two cuties are clearly having fun prepping for the new movie.

It’s bring your mom to work day on the #Maleficent2 set!!!!! ✌🏼

But most notable of all is the totally on-trend tiny sci-fi sunnies that Angelina is rocking. She’s clearly not a regular mom. She’s a cool mom.

Elle donned a fun pair of sunnies too – tinted gem-encrusted silver ones – and the pair were both wearing simple white dressing gowns, on set in their oh-so-glamourous trailers.

Elle Fanning, who is set to reprise her role as Princess Aurora in the sequel, also shared another snap in which she is looking into the camera and Jolie has snuck up behind her.  From someone who was previously social media shy, Angie has definitely turned it around quickly.

In the new sequel, a live-action retelling of Sleeping Beauty, Angelina stars as Maleficent and is also one of the film’s producers, along with Joe Roth. Apparently, she decided to take on the role because of her love of the title character, reports Digital Spy.

Maleficent 2 is due to hit our screens in 2019/ 2020, so we have quite a while to wait, but we hope we see more of Ange on Insta in the mean time…
